Now, this is something that is really not making any sense at all. This problem has been around ever since I got this plugin. I don't know why it's happening or what caused it, but I haven't had any success trying to find a cure for it on the internet. Nothing looks wrong about the config and it doesn't give me any error whatsoever when the server starts. Before calling me a novice (which I am), I have a very broad knowledge when it comes to technical problems. Most of the time, I'm able to fix them. But not this one.
Now, I have installed Group Manager for my server a long time ago and it has never worked properly. It doesn't matter what group you are part of, you don't have any access to the commands that were meant to be functional. I haven't edited any of the permission nodes in the globalgroups nor have I added any. The same goes for the config. I have checked the groups.YML for errors and it comes clean. Every YML file for Group Manager comes back error free, yet the problem is still there.
Every time I want to change the group for any player on the server, it says this on the consol...
'Couldn't retrieve your world. Default world 'world' selected.'
That is all it says. Every group has next to no commands and even the simple /help command does nothing. It just says 'You don't have permission to use this command.'
Please, any help will this problem will be much appreciated.
This is a problem with GroupManager, not you, my friend. It's most likely another plugin conflicting it and GroupManager has no way of fixing the error on it's own etc.
I recommend getting another permission plugin, I can refer you two right now.
From my personal perspective, I would recommend PermissionsEx because it is a bit more simple that bPermissions, and more noob friendly, which you claim that you are.
If you are to decide you want to get PermissionsEx, I can help you easily with it for free. I'm pretty experienced with it and wouldn't mind helping you out.

Feel free to add me, I hope you can get this sorted out
I'm actually glad that they are stopping group manager. Why must people have a hard time trying to make it work and find other plugins that don't clash with gm? Nobody must use gm, EVER! I got permissionsEx and it's working perfectly. I got some help from the internet and it just works. I must just do some more ajustments and off I go.
I hope to one day make it a 24/7 server and these plugins will help save time when I get to that stage
Just to inform you all, I'm running it on a laptop.
